The 5TOI_4EWAS project on Energy, Water and Agriculture in the Southern Mediterranean Neighborhood has released its October newsletter. Click here to view the newsletter.
The 5TOI_4EWAS project backs a very inclusive innovation policy implementation path as well as the Horizon 2020 objectives for encouraging the research and innovation cooperation between the Union and Southern Mediterranean Neighbourhood . 5TOI_4EWAS proposes a radically new way to generate innovation in the South Mediterranean Neighbourhood, based on the innovation ecosystem created by the Research 2 Innovation projects funded within the 7FP. Under the Quintuple helix model, involving the widest possible range of stakeholders, the project will focus on three key challenges – Food, Energy and Water through the Nexus approach – as these issues are obviously at the top of the Research and Innovation agenda in MPC countries.

One of the main activities of the project is the Nexus Think Tank, which is under the leadership of UNIMED, composed of experts from the public and private sectors. It discusses relevant topics – in relation to social needs in water, food and energy sector – contributing to regional development that can be solved by Research and Innovation, also in relation to potential political and policies paths.

The next meeting of the partnership, hosted by Innolabs will be held in Pisa at the end of November.
